I’m in asset management sales and keen to accelerate my learning in alternatives (private equity, private debt, real assets, liquid and semi-liquid alternatives) so I can have more productive discussions with clients. 1) What are some good news platforms to stay updated on alternatives space in Asia? 2) Besides CAIA, any educational platforms to learn more about alternatives?

In your line of work, I imagine you could also benefit from brushing up on how managers and wealth firms are making Alts funds accessible to individual investors. Cerulli, Broadridge, possibly also Citi Business Advisory Services all have white papers on this topic. You might also want to read anything you can find about iCapital. In general, though, Preqin has some valuable primer materials on Alternative Investments, and many of those resources are free.

Hi all,
Need an advice. I am confused between doing masters or learn tech stack and increase experience and salary.

If masters I have to do in US or UK, so GRE, GMAT.
If for learning and tech experience I can learn tech stacks.
But I am confused between this.
Could you please tell or suggest what would be a better choice? Is doing masters in US or UK is a better ROI or be in India and gain exp and earn more by switching?
Currently I am a Java developer.

So, I am a high performer and had to cover for two very senior roles for many months due to quick high turnover. We already had our talks. I found it funny when I was told, “oh and by the way… as you can see we increased your bonus to thank you for covering for so and so.” $500 increase………. Am I silly to think this “thank you” increase is a joke? No salary increase and only $500 thank you for covering for two additional jobs. Am I unreasonable to think the work I covered for wasn’t appreciated?
